Adjourned Until Monday

The trial of Saddam Hussein heard from two witnesses yesterday.

The first witness, who was a government employee in Dujail in 1982, noted that two names in the list of the 148 people allegedly executed by Saddam's regime in the 1980s are not true, because one of them died in battle with Iran six months after the Dujail assassination.

The second witness was Ali Daiyh Ali's wife, Saddam's co-defendant and former Baath party official, who said that her husband was not a senior official of the Baath party or with the government and he had nothing to do with the detention of Dujail countrymen.

The trial was adjourned until next Monday.
